The importance of cell division is to make sure an organism can grow.

if one cell dies another one can be made with cell division

Cell division basically sustains the life of an organism. Through cell division, damaged cells are repaired and dead cells are replaced, which allow the organism to grow and develop.

to tell the cell when to perform certain fucntions such as cell division and DNA replication

It is needed in order to form 2 daughter cells and complete cell division

:Mitosis is the cell division which did not divided the cell.: Reduction Division is the cell division which divided the cell into half.

Meiosis cell division is called reduction division because in this cell division the cells got from the parents cell is divided into half. So the daughter cells is haploid(n). Thus, meiosis cell division is called reduction division.

normal cell division has a specific "stop signal" wherein cell division then stops, permanently for that cell undergoing division. in the case of a cancer cell, that "stop signal" is overridden and what happens is that the cell continues to undergo this manic division frenzy.

No, the nucleus in a cell is what controls cell division.

Mitotic cell division is the way in which an organism grows and replaces dead or dying cells.

In the first division of meiosis, the number of cells is doubled but not the number of chromosomes. This results in 1/2 as many chromosomes per cell.

The importance of mitotic cell division is to make a greater amount of cells for repair and growth while maintaining the same genetic makeup MIOTIC CELL DIVISION IS ONLY FOR REPAIR SYSTEM OF CELLS IN BODIES. NOT FOR GENERATIVE PURPOSE. According to Human Anatomy and Physiology Labratory Manual tenth edition by Elaine N. Marieb and Susan J. Mitchell: page 45 " The function of cell division, including mitosis and cytokenesis in the body, is to increase the number of cells for growth and repair while maintaining their genetic heritage."

Mitosis and Meiosis are the process of cell division. They help the cell divide. This happens when a cell becomes to old or there's more cells needed in a certain area of the body.

Mitotic cell division is called homotypic cell division because no crossing over is occur in this division and pairing of homologous cromosome is also not occur. So caracteristics of daughter cells is same as mother cell. As there is no variation occur, so this type of cell division may called homotypic cell division.

There are 3 stages of cell division

Replication of DNA is preceded the cell division. During cell cycle a trigger for cell nucleus to undergoing division is received and the cell enters for division.

a new cell formed after cell division is called a daughter cell

One can think of DNA as the instruction to the functions of a cell, it used in the production of RNA which is thereby used for the production of proteins. So without DNA a cell wouldn't be, because it would have no "brain" if you will. Therefore, in regards to it's importance to cell division specifically, it "tells" te cell to divide, and how.

cell division is nessary because the cell with have too many chromosomes and cell division also helps reproduce cells

Cell division prevents the cell from becoming too large.

Carbohydrates give energy to living beings. They release energy for active transport, cell division and muscle contraction

Meiosis: sex cell division Mitosis: animal/plant cell division
